This podcast has a little bit of everything. Seriously.

Education reporter RJ Wolcott dives in to his latest project which looks at minorities in local schools. Sports reporter James Edwards gives his two cents.
Alex Alusheff stops by to talk about two of his favorite things: beer and video games. There's a new bar coming to downtown. The Lansing Beer Exchange might be the most talked about bar yet.
